Distressed Denim: How to Wear It

Can distressed denim be worn over a certain age?  Can it be work-appropriate?  My answers are yes, and definitely yes!  I don’t believe in these so-called rules of women over 30 can only dress like old ladies.  Look at Jennifer Anniston, Susan Sarandon, and Dame Helen Mirren.  They rock whatever style they feel like rocking.  I can hear you saying, “yeah, but they’re celebs, and they have different rules.”  I beg to differ.  Read on to see why I think we all can wear distressed denim any time we feel like it!

Vince Dress Three Ways

Vince-Dress-three-Ways-Title

This dress will look very familiar to you if you follow us on Instagram.  It’s my newest Vince dress that my sister bought me.  It is the most versatile dress I might have ever owned. It’s a great stretchy material, it’s not too heavy, especially now when it’s hot and humid out, and brace yourself for it — it’s washable!  This is basically a dream come true dress for me.  The best thing about it is that I can dress it up for date night, throw on the right shoes to make it work appropriate, or wear some great kicks to be casual cool for brunch or to see a concert.  Read on for my three ways to style the dress!

48 Hours in Long Beach Island

Two hours away from New York City, give or take, depending on traffic, lies Long Beach Island, New Jersey.  New Yorkites in the know tell their friends on Friday, “I’m headed to the shore.”  Neophytes, like I was at one time, think of that one crazy show, but that’s not what Long Beach Island is about.  This shore is all about taking it easy, relaxing, having fun with the family, and the beach.

Greetings From LBI
